Can you grow an aloe vera plant from a leaf of another?
If I cut/break off a leaf from an aloe vera plant can I just plant the leaf and it’ll make a new plant?
I’ve also read that I can use the plant’s “suckers” what exactly are the suckers? A picture would be nice… Or even an instructional video because I cant find one

Yes. The end of the leaf can be put in the soil. It will not look good for a few days, then it will perk up.They are also called shoots.The video will show shoots.

Hello moon_essence1!

To propagate an aloe vera plant, I usually wait until there is a small offshoot that can be removed from the mother plant and then transplant it into a cactus soil mix. The article below also details how to take a root a leaf cutting from the plant. Best wishes!
